from the jersey shore through long island. serious coastal flooding south of boston and down toward cape cod. what about the snow? there's a cold pool of air over southeastern new york into northeastern pennsylvania that will get sucked down toward the new york metropolitan area this afternoon. that's where the big wild card is. we know several inches of wet snow will pile up somewhere in new jersey up through southeastern new york to the northwest of new york city. what about the city itself and western long island, southwest connecticut, where the trees have leaves on them. why is that so important? we're just recovering in that vicinity from the power outages now. when trees get leaves and snow falls on those leaves, it brings downed branches and starts a new round of power outages all over again. we'll know much more in the next couple of hours as precipitation first moves in and we'll play it throughout the afternoon step by step to see how it's going to pan out. >> all right. thank you so much for that. todd gross back at headquarters. today is back to lining up defensive play
